Procrastination is the Thief of Time.

In our daily living, we are often tempted to procrastinate; giving one excuse or the other to justify our actions. We tend to wait for the 'appropriate time’ when we will have the resources and be in the right place to do things. However, history has it that successful men never had an 'ordained time' to do a thing. Like all of us, they're constantly faced with challenges, yet they chose to 'sail on' anyway and in the end they triumphed despite all odds.

From cradle to the grave, there is NEVER going to be an ‘appropriate time’ to do anything; so cast away all thoughts of ease or inertia. The appropriate time is NOW. It is impossible to fail totally if you try, but remember that you will always miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

I conclude with the words of Theodore Roosevelt: 'Do what you can with what you have where you are.'
